Car wont start

Lately my car has been acting up, starting sometimes and not other times. I had noticed over the past 6 months or so that sometimes i had to depress my clutch a couple times and push really hard to get the car to turn over. In searching, i have begun to think it could be the clutch pedal position sensor. I called Oriely but they have no part under that name. Is there a different technical name for it.

It's a 2003 zetec with 140,000 miles.

Also, could it be a fuse or relay issue. I am on vacation in arizona and really need to fix this so i can get back home to california for work.

Thanks
